they all seem to have reached a crescendo once president obama was elected. so i don't see how people could think there's not a racial component. and it's unfortunate, though, when you point that out, they want to push back and say you're using the race card, but the reality is that the attacks on this president are unprecedented. the reality is, also, that he's needed security and had more secret service threats against him based on race than anybody else in the history of the presidency. and those are real issues and louie gohmert is playing into it and that's also what makes this so irresponsible. >> you think their hatred for the president plays out in the legislative processes as well? i know it does. i mean, i believe it does. they, 368 filibusters. i mean, they don't want anything to do through from his agenda. they come up with the wildest conspiracy theories that we've ever heard. now, of course, the bombing of libya. i mean, it's pretty outrageous. how -- do you think in some certain ways that this is a motivating factor for the progressive base? >> i do. i think it definitely mot

and the democrats could get a deal that is acceptable to both i would be very happy, and then obama owns the economy in 2013, and 2014 and then we'll see in the off year elections whether he can keep it. and then we'll see what happens in 2016. martha: erskine bowles made comments about how to put together a deal an basically looked at where the numbers are and he said you have to trim both sides a little bit. he said i see room if here for a deal. do you recommend that kind of compromise, and would it need to involve, in your opinion, only bringing money into revenue through eliminating tax loopholes and not through raising rates? >> what i would like to see done, i'd like to see us lower rates and broaden the base just like the simpson-bowles has it. i would like to see the 1986 tax act then i would love to see spending reductions. you know, a low rate flat tax is not only fair, it's also efficient, it creates prosperity. it's worked every single time and that's what they should do. now how you play it politically, you know, that you have to be on the inside to understand, but i don't mind the rep

with this was something created by congress and signed into law by president obama. so this is not a tsunami that just came by accident, mother nature. this was created by our elected public officials. should it go off, it will be nothing short of a nuclear weapon, a fiscal nuclear weapon. we have not only the increasing of capital gains taxes and marginal tax rates but 26-28 million americans are going to be subject to the alternative minimum tax. that is potentially $3700 additional tax liability. we have the elimination of the 2% social security benefit and up to $55 billion on the social programs. $55 billion out of defense on and on. this will be nothing short of a nuclear catastrophe. >> heather: we keep hearing how this is going to affect the higher income people. according to the congressional budget office, all americans will be affected if the deal is not reached. not just in terms of revenue but job loss. >> the crb o, congressional budget office is estimate being would literally take out of 4% of g.d.p. so potentially 2 million jobs lost. you are talking about $400 billion in increase. all
